Brodick Information Centre is ideally situated directly opposite the ferry terminal. Pop in and let us help you plan your time on Arran. We sell local Taste of Arran produce including preserves, chutneys, mustards and oatcakes. Harris Tweed & Heather Gems Jewellery products are amongst our best sellers, together with local walking books and our range of Ordnance Survey maps. We can book accommodation for you on Arran, Kintyre and the Hebrides or any part of Scotland on request. During the summer sailings we can also book trips on the Waverley Paddle Steamer.

Well stocked with information and also helpful assistants. The centre is sited in the harbour complex and if you have a car adjacent parking can be problematical.
